Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Eid ul-Adha, Rapturous Yule, and a Festive Kwanzaa

Harvest cornucopia (Toledo, OH) I wanted to pass along glad tidings to all of the people who pass by this site during this holiday season, and I hope that whatever form your celebration takes, you will find this time to be restful and blessed.

This is a time to set aside those concerns that weigh us down, and for families to rediscover the bonds that keep us from wandering through the world alone.

I will be experimenting with my new camera today - Santa brought me a Kodak P850 12X-IS (5.1 megapixels). It is a considerable upgrade from my old point-and-click digital, and Santa also provided some zoom lenses, filters, and an assortment of accessories.

May the New Year bring even better fortune, health, and happiness your way!

May the sun stop its migration and bring warmth back to our neck of the woods.

What if we light grand bonfires and recite cultic prayers...?

Patience, LD, the bonfires will occur on the Fete de St. Jean, 22 of June.
People still build huge pyres here and it's still the night of all kinds of magic ancient and new. As the fire burns down around 2 am and the wine has run out, the locals youths jump over the flames to impress their new girlfriends.
It dates back to druidic times and beyond. We also have big stone altars in the forests in very special locations that were here way before the Celts! They are always located near springs.

A Merry Christmas and a Merry Festivus (among other more appropriate seasonal greetings) to all!
